This series contains 12 postcards and 10 stereographs. The images include depictions of activities such as weaving, basket making, and horse-racing. Communities represented include Diné (Navajo), Hopi Pueblo, Laguna Pueblo, and Taos Pueblo. The images also include depictions of a number of buildings and structures such as the Cliff Palace at Mesa Verde, the Lagoon Indian School in Phoenix, Arizona, and the Indian Building in Albuquerque, New Mexico. A number of the stereographs were produced by the Keystone View Company and feature educational, though not always accurate or factual, classroom information on the reverse. A number of the postcards were produced by the Fred Harvey Company which partnered with the Santa Fe Railroad in the early 20th century to generate tourism in the American Southwest.
